Has anyone had trouble emailing their query? Mine keeps bouncing: "Remote Server returned '550 5.7.520 Message blocked because it contains content identified as spam. AS(4810)'".

I've tried on and off for the last month. I've disabled links (eg to my webpage) and also tried with no contact information included, just in case. I've pasted the query and synopsis as instructed and can't imagine what word might be flagging spam (there's no swearing). As he reps mystery/thriller/military etc I wouldn't have thought words like "kill" and "murder" should be spam worthy.
